Our mission and the changing workplace

The business case for D&I is now well understood and CEOs and leaders understand that creating inclusive cultures is no longer a nice to have, but a commercial imperative. Yet, organizations are struggling to understand how to benchmark and measure how inclusive they may or may not be. Through our research and work with clients, we’ve identified four problems as to why they are struggling to create inclusive workplaces;

  •  

Ineffective Learning and Development 

Poor Collaboration 

Lack of Innovation 

Low Employee Engagement

The workplace is changing.

Employees are being more vocal about their needs and employers are recognising the necessity to make the workplace more appealing.​

Employees today pay more attention to their company’s reputation and are drawn to companies whose values align with their own.​

92% of employees would consider leaving their current jobs if offered another role with a company that had an excellent corporate reputation.​

Remote working is on the rise, 52% of employees around the world work remotely at least once per week, and 68% work remotely at least once per month. While this creates greater flexibility it can also be more difficult for employees to feel included.​

Employers therefore need to create an environment of belonging. Learning and Development is a huge area of focus for today’s employees. 93% of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their careers. Employees are calling for increased transparency around values. More than 83% of job seekers are likely to research company reviews and ratings online when deciding on where to apply for a job. There is a huge focus on wellbeing in the workplace. There is increased evidence that the employee’s overall wellbeing affects their performance. Mental health is a key contributor to productivity, so more and more employers are feeling a need to focus on this.
